Ya han pasado cinco meses desde que volví a habitar las celdas de la Sección Máxima Seguridad del C.A.S y creo que es necesario referirme tanto a lo personal como al escenario carcelario. Las razones para no escribir antes son, obviamente, personales; pero más que nada son debido a la creencia -a pesar de ser un convencido de que el compartir experiencias genera lazos impagables- de que la plataforma virtual y su conjunto de comunicados se aleja mucho de lo real y se acerca a una idea abstracta del día a día carcelario e individual. ¿Irreductible? Sí, exista o no un vaivén emocional, ni la convicción ni la mente flaquean, pero esa asquerosa idea del mártir de acero tras los barrotes debe caer. Por el suicidio de la imagen y el fetiche, por la real complicidad destructora.
“El pesimismo es el opio de los intelectuales, el optimismo pertenece a los imbéciles. Un realismo fanático y soñador, la conciencia de que no cabemos en este mundo, los valores que defenderemos en cada momento, más el calor cómplice de los que queremos y estimamos”.
Hace cinco meses, un poco de la detención:
El 7 de Septiembre, aproximadamente a las cinco de la tarde y a poco más de dos meses del quebrantamiento del arresto domiciliario total dictado por el aparato jurídico, me detuvieron al subir a un bus rural con dirección a algún lugar. (more…)

Note from Insurrection News: The following text by imprisoned compañeros Fabián Durán, Enrique Guzmán, Nicolás Rojas and Joaquín García was written in response to the cowardly attacks by prison guards against the imprisoned compañeras Tamara Sol, Tato and Claudia that took place at the San Joaquin women’s prison on January 11th and 12th. In response to these brutal and cowardly attacks friends and relatives of the compañeras quickly mobilized and held a demonstration outside the prison on January 13th. Banners were displayed outside the prison, slogans were shouted and also painted on the prison walls. Riot police eventually attacked the demonstration with water cannons and arrested 5 compas. Although the demonstration was suppressed it sent a clear message to the prison authorities that attacks against imprisoned revolutionary compas will be immediately responded to. You can see some photos from the demonstration here.
Chilean Prisons: Words in solidarity with Tamara Sol, Tato and Claudia
From the modules of the maximum security section we salute each of the compas kidnapped by the state, who day by day, with dignity and pride, face the prison reality in each of its expressions and forms.
A few days ago we learned in a more or less partial form of the cowardly attack by the prison guards against the compañeras Tamara Sol, Tato and Claudia. We are fully aware of how repetitive these actions have become, whether as punishment, isolation or an eternal package but the recurrence prevents normalization, this gives us more strength, to ourselves and to our convictions. Each day we become more acutely eager for revenge against the prison society and those who defend it. (more…)

PDF: 19 La Bomba 19
A nuestrxs queridxs lectorxs, afines y anónimxs en el mundo.
A nuestrxs presxs que resisten día a día al Poder.
A aquellxs prófugxs que burlan a las nefastas policías.
Por todxs lxs caídxs, en especial a la memoria combativa del Pelao
Sale para todxs ustedes: ¡El último boletín del año!
En esta nueva edición, la memoria combativa se toma las calles. Esta memoria combativa a la cual nos referimos, es una constante y creemos que es sumamente importante en el desarrollo político de cada individuo rebelde que asume su vida en lucha contra el Estado/Capital.
Es importante porque quien asume esa lucha, tiene que asumir también sus consecuencias; y en el desarrollo práctico, histórico de la misma, son múltiples los episodios de los cuales hay que instruirse para avanzar.
En ese sentido la muerte como consecuencia en la lucha es una situación ni querida ni buscada, pero altamente posible, por ende, la memoria combativa recupera -experiencias- para aprender de ellas y deja claro las consecuencias a asumir. Junto a los altos valores de respeto, hermandad, honor y dignidad del camino rebelde de quien luchó hasta el final.
Así avanzamos, retroalimentándonos, conociendo experiencias duras, como también hermosas, dejando claro que la lucha no es un juego y que más allá de todo, continúa. Así lo demuestra este mínimo aporte propagandístico, pasa y pasa el tiempo y los grupos de acción siguen dando lucha, aquí dejaremos plasmadas sus ideas, para que jamás pasen desapercibidas.

Letter from imprisoned compañera Natalia ‘Tato’ Collado in memory of Sebastián “Angry” Oversluij (Chile)
Thursday, December 29th, 2016
For my part I did not know Angry, but his death (to which I was not indifferent) brought him close to me via his writings, drawings, songs and the memories of other people that they relived with great affection and that allowed me and allows others to go beyond the day of December 11 and take a deeper meaning from the memory of a compañero and also of others. A sense of recognition of the person himself, of a being who took the step of defying himself, the society and this civilization of domination by compelling himself to live another life that was not established or pre-fabricated. With the ups and downs, contradictions and successes that come from rebellious decisions and wills.
The memory of which I speak comes from a feeling of affinity with the compañero and certain experiences, practices, desires, feelings and ideas that fill our life with a sense of self, pride and the impulse to walk along a similar path of struggle and confrontation, of desires and creation. (more…)

[Text for a gathering in memory of Sebastian Oversluij that took place in an anarchist squat in Chile]
One can never be really lost unless oblivion wraps one in her arms.
It’s been three years now that comrade Sebastian Oversluij does not walk anymore through the paths of searching for the wild beauty of anarchist action. It’s been three years now that some of our brothers and sisters there in Chile feel his absence stretching their hearts. It is three years since the bullets of a sneak-security guard of the “Banco Estado” took his life, extinguishing the flame of the anarchist spirit that used to burn inside him.
But we, in our turn, as well as many others, we are not willing to let our comrade disappear in the fog of oblivion. We honor our brother just like we honor his choice of passing into action, attacking a bank-a temple of money, emptying the enemy’s wallet, expropriating the minimum that we should get comparing to what authority expropriates from our own lives. The bank robbery carried out by an anarchist always carries inside the seed of refusal. The refusal to submit to a world where you’re restricted to sell your soul to the cruel laws of free market, so that you can live to work and work to consume and consume to fill in your existential gaps with a pile of useless objects.
We know that we are very far away and that our words have to cross an entire ocean to reach you. But we hope you’ll be able to feel the affinity we all feel with all those who discover the ways to keep our brothers close to us at the events, in discussions, in our imagination, but above all in the continuing of spreading the constant anarchist revolt itself.

During the first week of December, the trial preparation was concluded against the comrades Nataly, Juan and Enrique who are accused of various explosive attacks against police stations and metro stations.
In this bureaucratic / judicial instance it is sought to establish what evidence will be presented in the oral trial.
We must remember that these comrades are being held in the former penitentiary, the maximum security section and San Miguel Prison while the prosecution for their part raises accusations that seek to sentence them for decades and decades of imprisonment.
It is expected that they will soon set a date for the completion of the trial as a culmination of the democratic inquisition to punish the rebellious insurrectionists.
All our solidarity with Juan Flores, Nataly Casanova and Enrique Guzman!

Nemesis Project: Incendiary/explosive attack against the ‘National Association of Judiciary Officials’ / Proyecto Nemesis: Artefacto incendiario/explosivo contra ‘Asociación Nacional de Funcionarios del Poder Judicial’ (Chile)
Saturday, December 17th, 2016
On the night of December 11, we placed a homemade incendiary/ explosive device with a delay system in the National Association of Judiciary Officials building located on Cienfuegos street in the center of Santiago. The device detonated perfectly and set fire to the door of the building.
The National Association of Judiciary Officials is the place where the officials who authorize the operation of the prison-court complex meet every day. We attacked a den of the active machinery of the system that each day allows the miserable individuals of the State apparatus to exercise the right that they have assumed to judge and imprison other people.
Each sentence issued by judges, each conviction requested by a prosecutor, each imprisonment in the prisons of power is supported by the role of judicial functionaries who validate with their work the existence and maintenance of this repressive industry.
In these times of trials against anarchists who risk long sentences our action is a ray of fire from the depths of our dark intentions towards the social order of dominion.
To act as part of the international proposal of the NEMESIS PROJECT that was initiated in Greece by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire comrades to hit the powerful and their accomplices in their homes, their work and meeting places. (more…)

Nos reapropiamos del tiempo, es decir lo recuperamos, lo robamos. Así y solamente así logramos ponernos en comunión con otras individualidades para levantar una coordinación operativa con el objetivo de cuestionar y golpear lo establecido. Convencidxs de esto, irrumpimos con barricadas diversas calles y avenidas de Santiago, accionando contra el orden existente con el que lxs Poderosxs pretenden dominarnos.
La acción de propaganda realizada en las calles de la urbe va cargada de memoria vengativa pues ya van 6 años de absoluta impunidad desde que el Estado de Chile masacró a 81 presos. Efectivamente, fue en la madrugada del 8 de diciembre del 2010, en el ala sur y norte del piso 4, Torre 5 de la cárcel de San Miguel, donde la maquinaria Estatal mostró su verdadera cara, esta vez sin disimular ni ocultar la tortura y la muerte que trágicamente encarnó los cuerpos calcinados de 81 personas.

English translation via Insurrection News:
SEBASTIAN OVERSLUIJ IS PRESENT AT EVERY EXPROPRIATION ACTION AND OFFENSIVE AGAINST POWER
On the morning of December 11, 2013 compañero Sebastián Oversluij was preparing to expropriate a bank branch in the commune of Pudahuel. The compañero ‘Angry’ was entering the branch and pulling a sub-machine gun from inside his jacket to announce the assault. A miserable security guard lashed out at the compañero and killed him instantly. The uniformed bastard had military training and extensive experience as a mercenary in Haiti and Iraq. (more…)

Nemesis Project: Bomb threat against a military residential village in Santiago by Insurrectional Column ‘Wrath and Plot’ – FAI/FRI (Chile)
Tuesday, December 6th, 2016
“The big city also has a massive concentration of attack targets. (…) A few combatants can put large contingents of enemy forces in check by means of appropriate actions, the guerrilla must make it very clear that their attacks are directed in principle against all institutions of the enemy class, against all administrative positions, police and trustees but also against senior officials of these institutions, against judges, directors etc; Making it very clear that the war will bring them to the residential quarters of the rulers. (…) It uses surprise as a weapon and it the one that determines the time and location of operations.”
– The Modern Capitalist State and the Strategy of Armed Struggle / RAF.
The ideas and practices antagonistic to capital and the state have been a headache for the bourgeois order since it penetrated strongly into Chilean territory centuries ago generating diverse reactions executed by the armed apparatuses of the state whether in dictatorship or democracy.
During the 60s the OPV took power while in the 1970s the various armed Marxist groups were formed to combat the established power of their respective epoch. While the OPP fought during Allende’s rule, the MIR, FPMR and Mapu Lautaro fought against the military dictatorship, becoming part of the war against domination and against the state.
During the democratic transition these organization felt the offensive blow of the state and dismantled, however some of their fighters decided not to surrender.
During the 90s resurgent new currents of autonomy and horizontality emerged from the reduced anti-capitalist expression and came to public attention, mainly via demonstrations and street violence. From anonymity, sabotage with explosive devices against different targets of state and capital began to resonate and it was in the following decade when these actions led to anarchy being placed under the watchful eye of police intelligence.
The living expression of this new stage of anti-capitalism began to solidify the new autonomous and libertarian subversion in Chilean territory.
In the minds of agents of power there was no possibility that in the midst of democracy that there were individuals willing to violate and disrupt social peace and capitalist production. Bombings, street fighting, long days of protest accompanied by strong attacks against the police, sabotage, destructive fire and propaganda of insurrectionist ideas via multiform methods began to be part of the new diverse and decentralized praxis without command nor leadership of the anti-capitalist expression, the praxis of the insurrectionary anarchist struggle.
Over time, the state began to restructure itself, armed to the teeth, making its vigilance constant and abundant and introducing its discourse in society under the protection of its ever-faithful friend: the press. Simultaneously, modifications made jail an effective punishment for those who stray from the imposed normality, physical and mental annihilation under tons of concrete, and if possible murdered, this being the ultimate for of punishment for the subversives.
Using these tactics the state classified the subversive struggle as delinquency. For those of us who make it our lives this has no relevance because the vindication of revolutionary honor will always contradict their ‘truths’. However we need to understand that this qualifier aims at the prevalence of the interests of the powerful. Therein lies the aim of the insurrectional attack, to strike and to disrupt the power until they are unable to control its disgusting order.
In this way under the prism of the ideas and events exposed we have returned generating a series of actions which have not ceased, and we continue. Today we claim as part of our project: Bullets sent to the parish priest of the Church of the Sacrament in March, robberies in universities for political means in July, the placing of an incendiary device on a Transantiago bus (without passengers) in August. All these actions were claimed by the Death Brigade, Illegalist Band Sebastían O. Seguel and the Hermina Concha Nuclei of Attack, allied to the FAI-FRI are now part of the Antagonistic Nuclei of the New Urban Guerrilla.
On December 2nd, we left a fake explosive device inside the West Military Village located at Av. Pajaritos, Central Station, Santiago, Chile.
Our device consisted of a fire extinguisher with a cell phone wired to it to resemble a remote control (see photo). As we have already noted, the non-placement of an actual explosive device was a political decision. Because although despicable being who deserve to die live in this place there are also workers here day and night who are not our targets.
For this same reason we used fake devices at the Plaza Alameda Mall and on a Transantiago bus (with passengers) in December 2015. It contrast to this was the explosive device we left at the Gendarmerie Reinsertion Center in February of this year which was composed of 1kg of ANFO that was strategically placed next to a gas cylinder.
Now, returning to the morning of December 2nd: This hostile action where the military and police live was designed to demoralize the historical enemy of the revolutionaries. An enemy we will fight with all of our weapons and our forces. From our position we warn those of power: today was a simulation but we have weapons and explosives and we will not hesitate to use them when we decide on the day, time and place to strike.
From now on we warn you: disgusting military, tread with care: Maria Riquelme (Block 4, Apt. 12), Iván Pinto (Block 11, Apt. 24), Luis Orellana (Block 11, Apt. 1123), Oscar Moya (Block 11, Apt. 1124), Sergio Martínez (Block 11, Apt. 1142). Your peace and quiet is over. Today we chose randomly, anybody could be here, with caution we observed them.
Finally it is necessary to send a combative greeting and a sign of complicity to the comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (in prison and on the street) in Greece. With this action we wish to humbly contribute to the initiative of the Nemesis Project. We hope that this proposal resonates with every revolutionary and is materialized via concrete actions throughout the world.
Neither do we forget our brother in prison. Marcelo Villarroel, Freddy Fuentevilla and Juan Aliste, nine years since the manhunt began against them. We do not forget how the extinct torturer Alendro Bernales gave his message between the lines via the press: “They walk with death”. Neither do we forget the extensive legal process they had to face in a case initiated by the Military Justice which was eventually transferred to Civil Justice by the Military Prosecutor Roberto Reveco. A transfer which resulted in no major change in the predominant desire of power for huge sentences. Even so our brothers remained staunch and immovable, dignified and ungovernable. To you our solidarity.
We also wish to send a symbolic internationalist greeting to the autonomous guerrilla women who give life to the Revolution in Rojava in the Middle East. Women who practise ideas antagonistic to capital, state and patriarchy in the midst of an ongoing military conflict against bastard police and soldiers opposed to freedom and autonomy.
Finally we remember our brother and partner Sebastián Oversluij Seguel, 3 years since his death in an attempted bank robbery on December 11th, 2013 in the commune of Pudahuel, Santiago, Chile. Murdered by the hands of the vigilante William Vera, a military man with a lengthy resume, an assassin of capital with experience in military conflicts overseas.
For all this and more: Attack the Military Corps!
Hostility is fully justified!
War on the enemy in your territory!
Everything continues..We will be back!
